Wild turkey crashes through window of orthodontics office

(WHDH) — An orthodontics office in Cranston, Rhode Island, had an unusual patient show up for an after-hours visit earlier this month, shattering a waiting room window.

Pezza Orthodontics posted on Facebook a photo of a wild turkey sitting on a waiting room chair with shattered glass all over the floor.

Dr. Joseph Pezza says he returned to the office following the Columbus Day weekend and thought he had been robbed.

“I go to the front door and I notice a bunch of glass around the front door,” Pezza said. “I went up to the window to see what was going on and the turkey flew right over me.”

The turkey had smashed through a double-pane window on the second floor.

Pezza called property managers to help secure the turkey. They stuffed the turkey into a barrel and carried it away, but it did not survive the ordeal.

“It’s not everyday a turkey flies through the window in your reception room. But, it does happen. And no, we do not accept turkeys as new patients,” the office said.

Pezza says it took hours to clean up the office.
